Scottish Government: New Powers over CAP, 5 May 2020

Following a debate in the Scottish Parliament, CAP improvements (Stage 1) is to be simplified and improved.  It aims to ensure CAP schemes can continue beyond this year.

Rural Economy Secretary Fergus Ewing said:

“The ongoing uncertainty of Brexit and now the impact of COVID-19 show how important it is to give our farmers and crofters financial stability in the next few years. But we also need to have powers to simplify or improve the current Common Agricultural Policy schemes to tailor them to our unique needs.  

“This legislation sets out to do just that by creating new powers to enable us to modify elements of retained EU law. It will also update the legal basis for collecting information about the agri-food supply chain and activities related to agriculture.
